    Hello, guys, there is a similar thread circulating around but, bit different conditions so I decided to make a new one.

    Essentially I am in clusterfuck off medical conditions now but I am trying to get to the bottom of everything and I think some things have to do with my Vapecap.

    I been on and off smoking for the past month ( trying to quit), now i have lasted about 1 week, but all throughout this month I have been vigorously vaping my vapecap and here the fun begins.

    1. I have GERD ( acid reflux) decease and I had an episode lately where I was on anti-acids for a month...
    all through this month, I was getting this "Lump in the throat", Irritated vocal cords, essentially normal conditions for gerd so I thought.

    month comes to an end I feel fine, my acid feeling is gone but after nice vape sesh, i get massive hardness on my vocal cords, dryness in my throat and Pressure to my lungs around heart region and my left armpit? Almost like heart attack feeling( Only other time I had this feeling was when overdoing cookies or shrooms)

    2. The throat problems i had gotten all through this month, either by vaping little or vaping a lot. Chest problems 1 time in a long time.....

    The question i have is , isnt joint smoke a lot harsher and hotter then Vapecaps? If that is so why i don't get irritation from smoking but i get it from vaping?

    and what the fuck is with left side chet pain and armpit irritation pain? Is it something i should be concerned about? Its honestly felt like it had something to do with taking super large hits in a small amount of time, and would have hurt my diaphragm? somehow...

    Some of the chemicals we like, like THC, are natural throat irritants.

    Vaporizing is very efficient at removing the good drugs/chemicals in the plant, and depositing them in our lungs for lovely absorption.
    A cough can mean bad, but not always.

    As @Ramahs says, vaping very efficiently delivers all the goodies in weed without exposing you to harmful combustion.

    The Vapcap is a particularly efficient vaporizer. Take smaller tokes and try a mouthpull technique vs inhaling the vapor directly into your lungs. Heat a bit less aggressively. If this helps, your tokes have just been too big. Ease up a bit and hopefully you'll find some relief.

    Might want to start taking 1500mg of turmeric per day for the GERD. You could also try oil instead of flower for irritation. Best of luck.

    I think vapcaps, can be a little harsh on the lungs and throat. But, it is my favorite way to vape, so, I use cooling accessories, could be a water piece, j-hook, or an XL. You will find a way to cool the vapor, or you can find a different vaporizer, there are many. When I, over do it, it's usually because, I haven't used a cooling piece. The mouth pulls work well, if you are unable to add to your collection.:tup:
